Conclusion: This game is very compelling. After years of Triple Play mediocrity I had pretty low expectations for MVP Baseball 2003. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the gameplay. It's not quite as realistic as High Heat, but the interface is a lot of fun to play with. I think that this title may be the beginning of great things from EA. Keep an eye on this series. Buying it will be a must if they sort out the issues in the gameplay.
Conclusion: While I'm disappointed in some aspects, I'm not out to make this game a bad one. I really saw a lot of progress in MVP vs. Triple Play; however, it looks like even the studs at EA are entitled to make some rookie mistakes. While the stronger features like the new pitcher/batter interface are outstanding, I'm not sold that this is the king of the mound. The major problem is with the defense, and I think defense wins championships.
